Man United vs Leicester City live score, updates, highlights from Premier League match

By | February 19, 2023

Manchester United will hope to warm up for a decisive week in their season with a good performance at home to Leicester City on Sunday.

Next week will see the Red Devils face Barcelona in the second leg of a Europa League knockout playoff, with the scores tied at 2-2 from the first game, before they take on Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium in the Carabao Cup final on February 26.

They cannot afford to be distracted from the visit of Leicester to Old Trafford, though. Brendan Rodgers’ side might be enduring a disappointing season, but they scored eight goals in back-to-back wins over Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur coming into this fixture.

Man United vs Leicester City live updates, highlights

1st min: The first thing to note is that United are setting up much as they did against Barcelona, with Marcus Rashford as the No.9, Wout Weghorst behind him, and Bruno Fernandes on the right. The Red Devils are started brightly, too.

KO: We’re underway at Old Trafford!

5 mins before KO: Players will wear black armbands today as a mark of respect for Christian Atsu and the victims of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

30 mins before KO: This will be Bruno Fernandes’ 150th start for Manchester United in all competitions. He’s started more games than any player in Europe’s top five leagues since his debut in February 2020.

1 hour before KO: Erik ten Hag does indeed ring the changes. Diogo DalotVictor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez all come into the defence after missing the Barcelona match, while Marcel Sabitzer returns having been banned for the Europa League game. There is also a start for Alejandro GarnachoScott McTominay is fit enough for the bench, but Antony and Anthony Martial remain out. Harry Maguire is sidelined with a knee injury.

1 hour 30 mins before KO: United have a huge week coming up, in which they will go toe-to-toe with Barcelona in a Europa League knockout playoff second leg just three days before the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle United. Erik ten Hag is likely to make the most of his squad for today’s game, particularly with Casemiro serving the final match of his domestic suspension. His lineup will be interesting.

2 hours before KO: A win for Man United today, and they will be back to within three points of second-place Manchester City. They beat Leicester in the reverse fixture thanks to a solitary goal from Jadon Sancho, assisted by Marcus Rashford — the man who is arguably the league’s most in-form player right now.
